    Now compare that to MLB (Sabermetrics) and the NFL's endless analyses - from breaking down every play on film - to the time of the shuttle test at the Combine, both of which leave no stone unturned...

    Why would they want to? They are running farther is they leave their lane. How often does this happen?


    The issue IS whether Adeoye was impeded. If she had closed on VCB, the officials would...

    That her physique was intimidating? Wasn't that the point? She was ripped and that was a key to her success. Flojo was also ripped.
    You are insinuating something that is not there. Nice try,...

    Right. Here's a bold prediction - we do better there than we did here. I know that a regression to the mean is in order, but even if we do NOT do better, USATF still needs to do a thorough...

    Why not just go with that. They are known as the All Blacks already - have a black flag with the silver fern.

    Condemning the known users, but not caring at all about the flawed process at uncovering the users is NOT a fan base that cares about PEDs.

    Perhaps their journalistic investigatory resources would be better spent looking at the drugs used in the NFL, MLB, NBA, etc., where the MILLIONS of fans turn a blind eye. Clucking at the speck in...

    You're last sentence is correct. The officials can't make that call, but you have the rest wrong. The call that they can't make is that she WAS impeded. The runners weren't even close. Adeoye would...
